FOREWORD 



f I ^HE purpose of Herringshaw's City Blue Book 
of Biography is to present in one volume, and 
in condensed form, a standard work of Biographical 
Reference, giving appropriate notices of all those 
who are identified in any capacity with Chicago's 
Educational, Social, Civil, Professional, Financial, 
Industrial and Commercial affairs. 

The work contains an Alphabetical Record of 
Chicago's Business Men, Merchants, Manufacturers, 
Builders, Financiers, Lawyers and Jurists, Physicians, 
Clergymen, Educators and other Progressive Citizens 
who hold positions of trust and honor in their chosen 
vocation in the various lines of human effort. 

These Representative Citizens of character and 
influence, by their enterprise and thrift, by their 
activity and sagacity in business, and by their zeal 
in educational, social and public matters, have con- 
tributed vastly to the moral, spiritual and material 
prosperity of the community in which they live. 

As Builders and Merchants, they have erected 
buildings and illumined the marts of trade; in the 



field of Science and Medicine they have obtained 
great prominence; in the arena of Statesmanship they 
have produced men of thought and men of action; 
while at the Bar and in the administration of Justice 
they have shown erudition and wisdom. As Clergy- 
men, Educators and Lecturers they have occupied 
high places; and as Artists, Musicians, Composers 
and Authors they have contributed profusely to 
social life. 

Of many men more might have been written. 
But where not enough has been said, the fault must 
be attributed to the indifference of the person mostly 
interested. The Editor is only too pleased to receive 
Data to the end that each and everyone may receive 
due recognition and an authentic record. 

We feel confident that this authentic collection 
of Chicago's foremost leaders of Life and Thought 
will be an invaluable acquisition to current Litera- 
ture, and will meet with a hearty welcome at the 
hands of an intelligent public. 

With such continued and courteous co-operation 
and support our best efforts will be directed in mak- 
ing Herringshaw's City Blue Book of Biography 
more and more complete from year to year.

from imperfect manuscripts or conflicting statements of standard 
authorities. What is worth recording .at all, is worth recording 
carefully and correctly; and when mistakes are discovered, a mem- 
orandum of the errors should at once be sent to the publisher for
